    My biggest fear is they simply hire one of the current coordinators. That would be the ultimate Bengals move.

    If I had to guess, he's content on bidding his time until Belichick hangs it up.

    I think he'd listen. Its not like the Bengals are the Browns who simply don't have very much talent. There is talent to work with in Cincy, its the culture that needs changed.

    They need someone to change the culture and hold the players accountable. I don't think McDaniels is that type of guy.

    I'll take your word on that as a Patriots fan.

    Players coaches, wildly unprepared and players lack discipline. Inmates run the asylum. Similar winning % and always comes up short when it matters. Marvin Lewis = Dusty Baker. We've had the please of watching them both for years.

    Highly unlikely, but my vote would be for Matt Patricia (Patriots DC).

    I agree. Which is why I will continue to watch documentaries on the mating habits of the northern flicker instead of Bengals-Steelers games.

    Other than that he is right on. I think the Bengals have accepted they won't beat the Steelers. It comes from lack of leadership from coach Lewis. The two most important leadership roles on a team is head coach and qb and neither is a leader or holds people accountable.
    Burfict is like a NASCAR driver who keeps wrecking his ride. When he is able to avoid wrecks he is almost a sure top 10 finish. But he has a wreck every other race and is out of the money. Would you call that guy a good driver? If you were the car owner, would you want him as your driver?

    He and Mike Vrabel would be on the top of my list, but I'm biased.

    Josh McDaniels is who I have wanted for a long time. I want someone who does have some previous head coaching experience. I also want someone who is more of an offensive guy. I am done with this whole ultra conservative mindset that we have seen for all these years. I also want someone who has shown he can run many different systems to fit whatever personnel they have. McDaniels fits all those molds.

    Plus at the end of the day, I do think he would hold players more accountable than Marvin has at least. He is not going to want to fail a second time as a head coach.

    Agree with this entire post.. he’d be the guy I’d want... not sure he wants the Bengals job though... we’ll see, if Marvin even gets fired.

So I don't think I would the Bengals to be his first stop completely on his own running everything.
